5 confessions of a naughty mama

"confessions of a naughty mama"

Are you a naughty mama?  I know we’re all grown-up and supposed to be sensible and responsible all the time.  But sometimes do you do naughty things?  I do and I just can’t help myself.  Here are 5 things that I do that I probably shouldn’t:

1.  I often sometimes hide from Anya in the kitchen and eat chocolate secretly.  And if I run out of my chocolate, I start eating Anya’s after she’s gone to bed.  When she discovers that her chocolate has nearly disappeared, I blame daddy.

2.  I make up crazy stuff about things like what not eating your veggies or sucking your thumb can do to you.  I once showed Anya a completely toothless old man and convinced her that is how she would become if she didn’t stop sucking her thumb.

3.  I’m not big on swearing except for saying ‘shit’ way too much in front of Anya.  The other day she asked me “Mama, why do you keep saying shits?!”  I gave her a chocolate biscuit to distract her (after I had earlier told her there would be no biscuits today) .

4.  I tell little lies.  All the time.  Things like I don’t know how that (noisy) toy disappeared overnight.  Maybe you lost it somewhere.  That is the most beautiful painting I have ever seen (sorry Picasso!).  I will tell your teacher if you don’t brush your teeth.  The list goes on…

5.  When I’m tired, to shorten the bedtime story routine, I skip lines from the book I’m reading to her.  It used to be pages but she’s cottoned on to that little trick!

What do you do?  I’d love to hear about your naughty habits because I’m seriously hoping that I’m not the only naughty mama out there!

    I confess my self 😉 I do the same with chocolate or ice cream – I put her to sleep and then I attack my stack of sweets!!!

    And the bed time story – used to do the same… 🙂 🙂 🙂 But unfortunately that tactic is not working anymore – I’ve been caught several times – since she’s on first grade and she can already read, slowly but…

      I’m so glad there are other naughty mama’s out there. I don’t think I have long left for the story book trick but might as well use it for as long as I can! Life is too short to be good all the time 🙂

    Haha, you had me laughing out loud there… because I recognised myself! I do it with sweets rather than chocolate, but I don’t bother blaming hubby: the kids know it’s me munching on the treats. Our second had a week of adding ‘flipping’ to (absolutely) everything, from “Where’s the flipping ketchup, daddy?” in a really sweet voice to “I don’t want to wear that flipping dress!” in a rage. We decided it would be wise to stop saying “flipping”. Mel

      Ha, ha… you are more honest than me! I don’t want to face the aftermath if I say it’s me and as hubby is at work, she forgets by the time he comes back. I take the easy road! Too funny with the whole ‘flipping’ thing 🙂
